In our commitment to your safety and health, we use digital x-rays to take photos of your teeth, which use 90% less radiation than standard film x-rays.
Digital also provides several additional advantages:
- No risks to our environment. Digital completely eliminates the need for the typical chemicals required for regular film and x ray processing.
- The detailed image is almost instantaneously translated onto our computer screen, carrying with it all the advantages of other digitized images – it can be magnified, adjusted for contrast, and used for diagnostic evaluation of cavities, gum disease and bone loss, as well as cysts, infections etc.
- The image is stored easily and efficiently in our computer files, eliminating paper files as well as damage or loss of the film.
For insurance purposes, referrals or patient education, VCCID can easily reproduce our digital x-ray files and transfer them electronically.
